A nice metaphor for the spinning earth: a Ferris wheel on which each passenger comes from a different country. That is the goal for Food4You: a highlight of the knowledge festival on 7 October. With almost 150 nationalities, Wageningen is expected to set a new record.
Attempt on the record? Well, yes, except that it is not clear whether a record exists, Mirjam reluctantly has to admit. And if so, what the current record is. 'But if there isn't a record yet, then we'll establish one now and make it a hard one to beat.'
So spread the word. What is needed? As many foreigners as possible to gather at the Junushof Café from 17.00h on Friday 7 October. The attempt on the record will take place at 19.00h. They should have their passports with them and can only take part if they are the first volunteer from their country. And what do they get in return? A free ride on the Ferris wheel and the chance to participate in a legendary record setting which will put Wageningen on the map, once and for all, as a cosmopolitan metropolis.
